We agree getting your music mainstream is hard but sometimes it’s obvious the media plays a role in this; hyping zero talents and praising artists with swag, so at the end of the day, you have a lot of junk with very few talent in the industry.
We feel there are some great artistes who do not get the props they deserve especially Akwaboah Jnr of Sarkodie’s SarkCess Music. Akwaboa Jnr. is one superb singer and songwriter who has written songs for top artists like Becca, Sarkodie as well as foreign acts.
Anybody who hears his song sees the maturity in it and it’s obvious he’s a good composer beside being a good singer. However, his progress in our music industry has been very slow despite his unique singing prowess.
So, it’s as a result of of his slow progress in the game that he has taken to social media to voice that Ghanaians don’t appreciate good music like his own. To him, it’ll take more than decades for Ghanaians to understand what’s called good music.
For clarity sake, born Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah isn’t the only person or musician to assert that Ghanaians are allergic to good music, songstress Noella Wiyaala recently made same statement. According to her, Ghanaians distaste to good music pushed her to sell her songs to the Europeans.
